Pros

BD is very conscious of quality of life, working environment is very congenial, work is challenging but rewarding. BD is very committed to its mission statement of "helping all people live healthy lives", and work to that end is rewarding.

Cons

Compensation is at best average compared to others in the medical products industry. Company is too risk-averse in product development and overdependent on acquisition for innovation. BD typically does not like to hire employees without significant experience, which leads to having an older workforce.

    Pros

    Looks good on resume as company has good reputation based on Franklin Lakes, NJ headquarters. Some good associates using as learning ground and seeking new positions elsewhere after 1 - 2 years.

    Cons

    Toxic culture. Many associates not qualified to perform their responsibilities. Management doesn't have a clear direction and doesn't communicate to Managers. Associates tend to have spent whole careers at BDDS and are not willing to learn or to incorporate best practices from other companies. Associates resistant to any type of change initiative and actively work to undermine change initiatives. Management supports long tern employees rather than new hires with new ideas. Associate bad behavior often rewarded b/c it's easier than addressing the issue.
